About the author:

Nirbhasa is originally from Ireland but currently lives in Reykjavik, Iceland. He is an enthusiastic multi-day runner, having completed four times the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race - the longest race in the world.

As those of you who have been following the race know, we have occasionally received incredibly beautiful and detailed race statistics from 3100 Mile race enthusiast Matthias Van Baaren from Vienna which were a huge inspiration for our daily charts. We had not recieved any in a few weeks, and were wondering a little what happened...

Matthias checked in with us just recently and explained the delay - on day 21, his son was born! Matthias says that's the reason everything is taking a little longer to finish, but he is still working one to two hours every day the stats (between diaper change).  Matthias says that maybe the above photo of his son (who he assures us is a fan of Surasa Mairer, also from Vienna) is the first picture of the future winner of the 50th 3100 Mile Race, in 2046....

Here are the race stats from the last 4 weeks for your perusal:
